Vancouver, WA Accident Attorney: Products Liability
The State of Washington affords broad protection to consumers against dangerous and defective products. Despite recent efforts to make products safer, thousands are still injured and killed by defective products every year. Examples include:
- Vehicle Related Injuries (exploding airbags, defective tires, etc.)
- Workplace Accidents (defective safety equipment, unguarded saws, etc.)
- Children’s Toys & Clothing (toys containing lead, flammable clothing, etc.)
- Asbestos (insulation, building supplies, irrigation pipe, gaskets, etc.)
Caveat emptor (“let the buyer beware”) is thankfully no longer the law in the State of Washington. Products should be safe to use for their intended purpose, and manufacturers and sellers must warn consumers about the dangers associated with using their products. This requirement includes providing adequate warnings and instructions to the consumer.
